Eduard has posted on Facebook CAD images of their planned release of a new tool 1/48 scale Hawker Tempest
The images look like a Tempest Mk.II to me, though Im no expert. No indication of a release date, though this project has been simmering for some time now.

Please remember, when contacting retailers or manufacturers, to mention that you saw their products highlighted here on AEROSCALE.

Hi Tim Exciting News! It's great to see Eduard revisit the Tempest. It's not a Mk.II, though - that had a Bristol Centaurus radial engine. Maybe one will follow in due course (like Special Hobby did with their 1:32 beauties), but this looks like an early Mk.V with projecting cannon barrels. All the best Rowan

I see, thanks Rowan

I see, thanks Rowan [/quote] Yep definitely an early Mk.V. The first 100 Mk.V aircraft were fitted with four long-barrel 20mm Mark II Hispano cannons and had some Typhoon components, and most had the smaller diameter four spoke wheels. Andy

Funny thing, I was hoping to see Tamiya making a 1/48 Tempest in a near future. Didnt expect Eduard to revisit one of their rookie subjects outside WW1. Smart move I guess. Looking forward to see some sprues
